So u say the team is void of talent and then go on to say Frank is not the guy. Isn't that on Ballard? This team lacks play makers on offense that allows it to spread teams out. I am still waiting this over rated and over paid Oline to get it together. Numerous penalties today on the Oline. Unacceptable. I am yet to see this Oline dominate hell even play well against a talented defence. It is suppose to be the cornerstone of this team. This team is what it is. 

Ballard hasn’t done enough either. He isnt free of criticism by any stretch. Especially at WR and Defensively.


That being said, Frank and this offensive performance along with others is maddening

Fair assessment. I am not loving the line play today. 

With that being said, I would have liked to see more adjustments. With a full commitment to the run, you would think the passing game opens up more. But we can’t seem to buy enough time…

Yeah, our premium O-Line is looking below average right now, can't run block and can't pass block.


Heck they haven't even been able to play screens correctly

Not pretty but I’ll take.  This team needs to get a lot better to make a playoff run.  We are getting in our own way. 

the communication on the offensive line is horrible .  most of the game i watched colts double team one guy and leave a free runner going to carson .    blitz pickup is bad

    • When I say talent I mean actual difference makers, not JAGs.    I wasn’t talking about Steichen. I was talking about the new DL coach and Secondary coach as that was the conversation.    Why do you say I’m shovelling worry, when our pass rush has been subpar for years and our secondary has been aswell? Do think it’s unreasonable to question whether any of the talent, the coaching or the GM is getting it done at this point?   These things have been topics since I started posting here and it still is. I don’t understand how you don’t think that’s a concern. 
    • I think if Ballard doesn't add talent, it can be fairly interpreted as if Ballard doesn't add enough talent. The NFL Draft kinda forces every GM to add talent, doesn't it?    Aren't you the guy who thought that at that end of last offseason Ballard had left such obvious holes in the roster that it was apparent the team was tanking? 
    • I was thinking about Moe Allie Cox’s cap situation.  He currently counts at almost $6m against the cap.  PFF thinks he could be a cap casualty.  With Ogletree’s spot on the team up in the air and Woods situation also not the most assuring I was thinking the Colts might ask him to take a pay cut and keep him.  He might be receptive to that instead of going out in the market and taking a lesser amount with a different team.  He has certainly made contributions in the red zone and as a blocking tight end.  Taking a pay cut might make sense all the way around.  Just a thought that I think has merit.
    • I agree. Passsing on Bowers is wild. But he went to the Bengals which tells me DJ forced a pick. Sometimes with mock drafts, people love a player and team fit so much that they have players slip way past what is feasible. People have been clamoring for the Bengals to draft a TE for years so Bowers would be a dream scenario for that crowd that thinks that.
    • The only thing that it changed was that Kelce got more looks and went from 1 catch for 1 yard before the half to 9 catches for 92 yards the rest of the way.     Forgotten is their LB play. Their LBs Nick Bolton and Willie Gay are good blitzers and stay with boot legs and rollouts well enough that Purdy with pressure in his face can barely get 5 yards off his throw after the pass catcher gets tackled. When 1-on-1 Purdy once outran Nick Bolton for a horse collar penalty, so Spags changed it to a safety Reid instead of putting an LB on Purdy realizing Purdy has got some wheels. You couldn't help but notice the quick adjustment. Plus, the angles an OLB takes also matter. Sam Hubbard of the Bengals on the surface may not be fast in a straight line but he takes very good angles and hence Lou Anurumo used that DE/OLB as a Mahomes spy and played contain in that 2021 AFCCG where the Bengals beat the Chiefs.   The biggest difference now is that Mahomes and The Chiefs are dinking and dunking like Brady and The Patriots and it is not a deep to shallow level passing game like before, more shallow to deep levels that gives DCs fits because Mahomes' decision making, since he was forced to grow after Tyreek Hill left, has improved. It doesn't help he has a D like the Patriots in those early SB years either.
